Los Angeles, Jan 13 (IANS) Rapper Will.i.am finds Justin Bieber “extremely talented”, and says he has always believed in the pop star.
The Black Eyed Peas star believes that the “Sorry” hitmaker defined contemporary pop music, reports femalefirst.co.uk.
“I’ve always believed in that kid, I think he’s extremely talented and I’m happy for him. It’s one thing to have success, and it’s another to be paving the way and defining contemporary pop music. He went underground and took underground to the surface, so hats off,” Heat magazine quoted Will.i.am as saying.
The 40-year-old also shared that other people weren’t always convinced by his faith in the 21-year-old singer, both at the beginning of his career and again a few years ago when Bieber’s wild partying and bad behaviour were generating more headlines than his music.
